The soundtrack for the Lineweights REVOLUTION has come!

http://streetsweepersocialclub.com/

Our boy Tom Morello has teamed up with MC/Activist/Artist/Front man of The Coup…Boots Riley.   Morello representing the SoCal, Boots from the mean streets of Oakland representing NorCal…join together to spread the word of uprising, change and revolution.  Street Sweeper Social Club is….”more than a band, it’s a social club.”  Love the idea of looking at MUSIC as more than the “individual band”, but more about the SOCIAL group it creates.  Thats the same reason why Lineweights is online!  Enjoy the boombox-tommy gun-earshot!

In Memory of Michael Jackson

These sketches were done in loving memory of Michael Joseph Jackson, the King of Pop.  The gathering of people I see on  TV, the Internet and in every other area of life…speaks so strongly to the fragility and love we all share as humans.  Micheal stood for much more than music and dancing to so many people….unity, peace, happiness and equality…(the music and dancing did help thou :).  Even with all the difficult periods in life he faced, people  still stood by him.  The joy and memories he brought to so many people across the globe will surely be missed but also remembered.  I still remember getting my copy of Thriller, which was my first fill lenght album.  I listened to it over and over and over…  Thanks for the memories MJ, and peace to the Jackson family.

Gavino & Kike

I wasn’t sure what to post next. Opportunity presented itself last night. I went to my very talented friend’s gig @ Mezcal’s in San Jose. We both did what we love. He played and I sketched and listened. Given I came in kinda late but I still managed to put few lines in. Gavino plays just about any string instrument under the sun – guitar, vihuela, sitar, ukalele, etc… I heard him play sitar once, which moved me very deeply, I am looking forward to sketching that up sometime. With him and his buddies (Enrique and Jose) jam away every Tuesday. If anyone of you likes spanish, latino, improv music come down to Mezcal downtown San Jose every Tuesday night – I believe it starts @ 7pm.

Kike is on the left and Gavino is on the right I didn’t have the time to manifest Jose (bass) :/. All that you see is about 30 min worth on Bienfang 360 and bk ballpoint. Enjoy.
